This is a figurative language unit to teach Personification in writing centers! There are 32 individual task Cards, a poster (or anchor chart), a tracking/recoding sheet and answer sheets. I've used 2 QR Codes for Quietube.
Understanding personification is a huge step to improving reading comprehension and writing.
The poster is illustrated and has a simply worded explanation, to help students to identify and use this literary element.
The tasks are also illustrated and give examples of personification in context, clues and practice for students recognise and write personification.
Once a student understands and becomes familiar with figurative language, he/she will be able to include examples in writing tasks successfully and confidently. This knowledge also improves comprehension, making students aware that literal meanings aren't always right.
This is a great unit for ESL students and adults, teaching the usage ideas.
Although there are 32 task cards, you don't need students to complete all in the same term; revisit later. I find once students understand personification, their comprehension skills quickly improve and they begin to deliberately use it when writing.
